Despite the deck's title, the Auset Gypsy Tarot appears to take little-to-no inspiration from the Romani peoples colloquially referred to as "gypsies" in times past. Instead, deck creator Jacob Pierri offers these definitions: "Auset: An ancient Egyptian pronunciation of the name of the Goddess Isis" and "Gyspy: A nomadic or free-spirited person". Thus, the author's narrative is more aligned with the traditional "Fool's Journey" framework of contemporary tarot. Astrological associations are an important part of the interpretational system here, with every card being assigned various planetary, elemental, and/or zodiac correspondences. The pips are beautifully decorated, but non-scenic, while the court cards are double-ended in the style of traditional playing cards. The deck is adorned with gold-gilt edging.
